Google can be considered as the best search engine because of its speed, reliability, user-friendliness and ease. Another major benefit of Google is its simplicity and fewer advertisements that other search engines lack.
Unlike other search sites, Google’s landing page is indeed simple and clean, loads quickly, and delivers the best results of any search engine out there, because of its PageRank technology and massive listings. However, search experts say that no single search engine provides the most relevant results for all queries. Google is ranked most visited site and most used search engine because more people use it than any other search engine.
Google is a crawler-based engine- this means it has software programs that ‘crawl’ the all information on the internet and add it to its database. Google is a good first place to start when searching. Google is greatly reputed for relevant and thorough search results. Its search algorithm brings the most relevant items on the top.
